A loan of $1,525 helped to buy rice, cooking oil, and sugar.

Antonia's story

Antonia lives in Guayaquil. She started her store with a little capital 15 years ago in her thatch house. Little by little she was improving her business and her house. She works in her store every day. Sometimes her children help her.

The difficulty that she has in her business is the crime in her area. She is single, and she has two grown children.

She wants to use the loan to buy rice, cooking oil, and sugar in order to improve her store’s supplies and to offer more products to her customers.

Her dream is to continue growing in her business.
